Need a Watchdog? Try a Doberman

doberman2A Doberman Pinscher is a medium sized dog that has sort of a square shape. Doberman’s are very keen, energetic dogs with a tremendous about of strength and stamina. These dogs are “people” dogs and do not like being in kennels or left alone in the back yard in a dog pen or on a dog leash. They need human interaction and leadership. They are loyal, tolerant and affectionate with family members. They are also very assertive and bold and very adaptable. Doberman’s are easy to train and make terrific watch dogs.

This breed is not for everyone. They need an owner who is willing and able to display a natural authority over him. All family members must be firm and┬áconsistent when it comes to the rules. You set the rules for your dog and then stick to them. You must also learn how to handle this kind of dog as they can become very stubborn and willful if they are allowed to have their own way. Remember you’re the leader. They make good family dogs if they are trained well, exercised regularly and socialized. Doberman’s have a reputation of being an aggressive dog. This is not the case. Doberman’s make very good therapy dogs. They are sweet and gentle with nursing home patients. Issues arise when the owners do not stick to the rules and do not provide the proper leadership.

As far as living conditions are concerned, Doberman’s do well in an average size apartment but they must get lots of exercise. They are very cold sensitive and not an outside dog. This is the reason why police in a cold area are not able to use them.
